I was an ER nurse for 35 years. I have never seen a patient brought in with CPR in route who survived with any quality of life.

When you look like you are anorexic cardiac arrest is a real possibility.

To #12-Good grief, if the man has had a heart attack, do you expect him to be superman and do a concert anyway? His health is more important than a tour.Im sure you will get your money back if the concert is cancelled.

Don't be surprised if this "tour" of his is cancelled. It's supposed to start in just a couple of weeks, right? I've been saying all along that it was all a big stunt. The dude's been blowing it out his little white azz for years and I'm sorry I just can't bring myself to believe anything about this sick little freak any more.
